Thank you all for a wonderful GO423

Thank you to all who gave their time and energy into making the 2015 GO423 symposium a wonderful weekend.  A collection of somewhat instant (read rubbish) photos here. If anyone has better pics do feel free to pass them on. The Brisbane game dev community rocks and we adore you!
